  1. Simply put, we have been tramatized by racism and oppression…We need to prove it??
    I know the right ??s to ask, that will prove it!!
    There are good and bad things, about slave decendants!!!
    When they say 'Survival if the fittest = ???
    If you're a woman genetic tests says they are identical to your mother's? If you are a man those are exact to your father? That days something profound!! But it on this open forum! Some would personally set out to sabotage…! 😢

  2. This highlights how important it is to live in a positive environment, and raise your children in a loving and supportive home. Yes, there are physical, social and culture changes that occurred as a result of systemic oppression. Some positive and some negative.

  3. When discussing the epigenetic events, we have to have the conversation about environmental permanency. The epigenetic effect is temporary. When the environment is changed the concept of extinction is easier to ensue. Where the DNA is permanently damaged, we then can ask the question of what caused it and its usually some type of genetic event such as race mix. The reason the question wont come up is the same reason the subject of rape during slavery is glossed over; the perpetrator does not want the event to surface. Its like the slave master can rape a woman and claim it does not exist cause there is no evidence and the victim certainly does not want to talk about it, its too traumatic. It is clear that any defect that comes as a result of something physically induced like Autism is directly epigenetic and the studies prove it as an autistic man can father a child and that child not be autistic. The survival instinct could be epigenetic but it passes as a drive as most drives do. A better example is beating children. Children who are raised in an environment where corporal punishment is not introduced, don't use it even if the parents where victims of it and are descendants of slavery

  4. We have the very lowest suicide rates.
    Yet we are the most oppressed.
    We keep hanging in there,while white mens with low sperm counts,keep drinking ,popping opoids,and just giving their pistols blow jobs.
    Looks like we are gonna be just fine!!😎

  5. Human DNA is like a cd it carries all information from your first ancestors to the present. As the old saying what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. We stand on the shoulders of all off our fore parents. But it's up to us to correct the flaws.

  6. If we unite Ms. Jeff's professional view and personal view, we find that she acknowledges our genetic material is vastly more than what is currently commonly accepted. Our ancestors teach us that our genetic material contains many many layers and cover the range of our being, thus we have physical genetics, mental genetics, emotional genetics and spiritual genetics. All these are mixed and mingled and are mostly unacknowledged and un-accessed. This portion then becomes more of what epigenetics is rather than epigenetics being simply the switching on and off of alleles via chemicals. These chemical changes are changes in the balance of elements in us. These elements are souls of life and contain memories because they are genetic material. We contain the memories of all that we are in all our lives in all forms, through all evolutions and de-evolutions, even something as recent as being in the womb. This is why no one has to teach us to go into the fetal position to sleep or to feel safe or when trying to cope with pain. Thus then, like all things, there is a suboptimal context for epigenetics that keeps us mostly in the current matrix. And then there's an optimal theory context that frees us back into the limitless from which we came and are.

  7. Seena Ghaznavi you hit the nail on the head "survival" yes an example for me would be financial crisis, great depression (1920s) and failing economy of present days. We (for the most part) have always been in a financial crisis but we survive. Financial crisis is everyday life for alot of us using what little resources we got to get thru. Karen I would so love come to your show for conversation. Would be great if you could extend a contest to your black enlightened over-educated audience to win a day of conversation with you on your
